Insomniac's president and CEO runs down his five favorite games from the year.
Agree with Ted, Witcher 3 is my GOTY too
Bloodborne is the better game by miles, by far the best game on any 8th gen Console.
One can't even really compare the games. Both are amazing for different feats.
For me I couldn't get into Bloodborne so Witcher 3 win my vote.
I did not like either (got both on my PS4 right now... I play FF VII instead...).
Pretty decent picks. Yep, surprised he didn't include Bloodborne instead of Undertale..
Bloodborne doesn't deserve GOTY because it is a re-skinned Dark Souls. The biggest differentiator is the use of guns, and that's it.
And no shields.
Yet other GOTY candidates like Witcher 3, MGS 5, Fallout 4 etc are all just sequels to prior games themselves. Reskins. So what's your point? @ Khaotic Sure there have been others. You literally just bulletpointed a commercial formula i've probably read on the back of 100 cases.
Spoken like a true hater who hasn't played the game to beging with...! No shields has been already compensated with a faster and more agressive combat, and a dash mechanics. I didn't miss shields.
Of all the GOTY contenders, the Witcher 3 plays vary similarly to previous in the series, while Bloodborne is probably the most different. Bloodborne is pretty severely different from the Souls games, actually. It's almost closer to Devil May Cry than it is to a Souls game, but it isn't quite like that either. Honestly, I think Bloodborne's closest analog is probably that it's very similar to what a 3D Castlevania SOTN would be like. MGS5 is decently different from what previous games in the series were like as well. But yeah, Bloodborne has very strong elements of Souls, Castlevania, and DMC. It's a really great game, for me, it takes the best of all those franchises (3 of my faves) and makes it's own mark.
Most times when you hear the term "re-skinned", the user is not to be taken even seriously. I mean.....would you even care to elaborate of what you mean? Pretty sure games are not made in this copy and paste format or um "re-skinned" lolz.
Pretty damn good list
Ori made the list again :)
Rocket League is the shit. Pretty good list. I've been noticing a lot of love for Undertale, but as I understand it, it's probably never going to come to consoles because of the way the saving system works. That's kind of a bummer. "May the Force be with you, always." - Al Pacino, Sith Lord
I've actually never heard of undertale
Dying light was great too.
I'm playing it on PC now, played it on ps4. Love this game. Still working on hearts of stone.
I played it on ps4 too. Graphics were just amazing. My jaw dropped when I reached the second map from the sewers. I'm sure it looks even better on pc.
thats a great top 5. i would probably have rise of the tomb raider in there somewhere
Ori's been making it on lots of lists, looks like I need to play it
Great list...all great games for different reasons.
Ori is an excellent pick
Dam I want a new resistance. More in the style of the original with dark tones and split screen single player as well. Heck all games should have split screen sp and mp.
Interesting top 5, The Witcher 3 is definatly in my top 5.
